ONE STROKE for ONE MONTH – Days 28-30

And so it is done!! 30 days of one stroke painting, spread over about 60 days :/ whoops! But I completed my challenge, despite losing inspiration several times, teaching my first workshop (!) and having some kind of RSI in my ‘hyper-mobile’ wrist! It’s been way tougher than I thought it would be, but the sense of accomplishment is awesome. I’ve fallen in love with one stroke even more, finding it to be even more fabulous and versatile than I first thought. Here’s to more crazy self-challenges!

ONE STROKE for ONE MONTH – Days 1-6

Next month I am teaching my very first workshop – in Northern Ireland! In preparation I am creating different one stroke designs every day – practising my technique and rediscovering the endless possibilities one can create with one strokes! I simply adore this method of painting, with its mouthwatering array of colour combinations, and the effortless blending effect achieved with one stroke of the brush ❤ Here’s to the next 24/25 days!!

❤ Rainbow arm art ❤

Rainbows are quite possibly my favourite thing to paint! I love to improvise and create unique different designs on the spot. Here are two fairly recent creations.

The left was a girl at a Pride event.
The right was a little boy who wanted me to paint his dreams being eaten by nightmares!!
